Normally, I would not have posted the pledge graphic for this week, as we enter the annual meeting. But this is too good not to share. We finalized the pledges, and realize that we have exceeded our goals for number of pledges and pledged amount. YOU ALL ROCK!
Blessings on your heads!!
Thank you!!!
Quote of the Week. . .

Food for Thought. . .
Another wonderful reflection during our monthly vestry meeting. Thank you, Dawn Randall. . .

Over a year ago we lost someone whom we all loved so dearly. Alice
Smith’s death has left a heartbreaking hole in our lives. Alice was one of
the first people to welcome me to St. Francis nine or so years ago. She sat
down next to me after a 10:00 service, asked me about myself, and
encouraged me to become part of the Altar Guild. I appreciated her
welcoming me and helping me to become involved in my new Church. She
took me under her wing during Landscaping and attempted to teach me
about birds and plants; she even tried to convince me that worms are good
for the earth after hearing me squeal when I unexpectedly encountered the
slithery creatures. To read more, click here. . .
Link of the Week
Amanda Gorman's poem for the inauguration. She evokes the
power and wonder of words that mark well this transition in our
country . . .
Going Deeper
An interesting reflection on gendering and God. . .
